Walk of Memories is an annual event, traditionally held the last Sunday in August. The Walk of Memories is open to all members of the public who wish to remember loved ones who have died and to support Palliative Care Services. As well, Walk of Memories offers an opportunity to connect with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one. This annual walk is intended to raise public awareness of Palliative Care Services in Saskatoon. For more information call 306-655-0573.
Memory Tree is a different sort of holiday tradition. For many people holiday music, family photos of seasons past, and the place at the table where someone special used to sit…all can be reminders of family or friends who are no longer here to share this special time of year. The Memory Tree provides a way for people to deal with their feelings without fear of criticism for not being in the holiday spirit. Anyone who wishes, may write a memory card, and hang it on The Memory Tree. The Memory Tree is located at Market Mall in Saskatoon from the end of November through the first week in December each year. In Saskatoon call 306-655-0573
